The Korea Center has opened in Los Angeles to promote Korean culture, tourism and information technology in the United States.

The new facility will serve as a home to representatives of the Los Angeles Korean Culture Center, the Los Angeles office of the Korea Tourism Organization, and the Korea Culture and Content Agency.

The opening ceremony was attended by Culture and Tourism Minister Kim Myung-gon, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and leading cultural and art figures from South Korea and the United States.

Villaraigosa urged the center to publicize modern Korean culture to Los Angeles residents, and play the role of a bridgehead connecting the past and the future and East with West.

The Culture and Tourism Ministry in Seoul will open similar centers in Europe and Asia.
